Maxon announced that the first 150 Tuk-A-Way GPT liftgates have rolled off the assembly line at the newly built Monterrey, Mexico, manufacturing plant. Production for the GPT line is now in full swing and units have started to ship.
“As demand continues to grow in the marketplace, so will our production capabilities. This is just the beginning of how we plan to ramp up our liftgate production to revolutionize the liftgate industry in the North American market”, said Brent Stratton, member of the Office of the President.
Meanwhile, installation of infrastructure and production lines continue.
“We’ve strategically planned the rollout for each product line, with a full across-the-board integration projected for end of 2023, said Maxine Lugash Stratton, the final member of the Office of the President.
Maxon will mark the milestone with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in the coming months.
What is the Maxon Tuk-A-Way GPT Liftgate?
Maxon's GPT series gates provide capacity and durability for demanding applications. Up to 5,000 lbs lift and a large, 60 x 80" platform make short work of the largest loads.
All Maxon Tuk-A-Way gates feature platforms that stow out of the way when not needed and therefore accommodate dock loading. With a low-maintenance design featuring heavy-duty structural components and platforms, as well as a weather-sealed pump box to protect against the elements, Tuk-A-Way gates are designed to provide long-term, reliable service.
Key features include:
- Designed to handle high capacity loads up to 5,000 lbs.
- Lightweight, rust proof extruded all aluminum platform.
- Large platform to handle palletized cargo.
- Torsion springs make large platform easy to open and close.
- Optional recessed dual cart stops.
- Galvanized Finish standard.
